Citizenship and Immigration Status: Process and Timelines for Our Undocumented Foster Youth – January 25th – 7pm – Presented by: Randi Mandelbaum, Distinguished Clinical Professor of Law, Annamay Sheppard Scholar, and Director, Child Advocacy Clinic of Rutgers Law School

New Jersey has many foster children who are not U.S. citizens and who are either undocumented or whose immigration status is not stable. The immigration status of a foster child can greatly affect their achievement of permanency and long-term stability. Fortunately, with
the assistance of an immigration attorney, many of these
children can be put on a path toward lawful permanent residence status (a green card). This workshop will take participants through the process and timelines undocumented foster youth face and how it may impact the services and legal options of the children and families.

From Burnout to Burning Bright – January 25th – 12pm – 1pm – presented by the National Council for Mental Well-being

This session will look at the things going on right now that are out of our control and accepting that is a wellness tool in and of itself. We will identify the realities of stress & burnout, what factors in our current lives influence it, and strategies to prevent burnout by prioritizing your overall well-being. We believe it is possible to rise from this better than before.

Check out this Webinar on Advancing Equity with the Family First Act presented by the Annie E Casey Foundation

The 60-minute session, hosted by the Annie E. Casey and William T. Grant foundations, includes discussion about:

  • How to ensure that all children and families can benefit from Family First program selections, despite a dearth of evidence-based programs focused on families of color.
  • Ways state and local agencies have engaged families and communities in designing a continuum of care that addresses the needs of young people of color and LGBTQ youth.
  • How to cultivate community support for programs that prevent the need for foster care or help kids grow up in families while in foster care.
